Key words: Holdridge system, Land use, Life zones, Physiognomic types.

Abstract

The life zones of Iran were mapped using the Holdridge system based on biotemperature and precipitation maps of Iran. Conversion of each life zone to an ecologically less valuable land use/cover was determined based on comparing the life zones and the current land cover of Iran. Results showed that Iran contains 26 life zones. Continue reading
